The highly anticipated match between WEC lightweight champion Jamie Varner and Donald Cerrone has been postponed because Varner is still troubled by a hand injury.

"The hand didn't heal right," Varner said.

Cerrone suggested that an interim title should be created, as Varner takes more time to make sure his hand heals correctly.

Cerrone mentioned Benson Henderson as a potential candidate, if an interim title is created, though Cerrone wasn't sure on how the WEC would deal with the situation.

Henderson's camp said he was training for a fight in September, but the opponent has not been determined.
